Charge Port Replacement
Phone Repair NZ offers charging port replacement for blocked, faulty, damaged or dead charging port. This includes microphone and aux port replacement for many mobile phone models.
What is charging port replacement?
Has your phone just stopped charging randomly overnight? It can often be as simple as just needing to clean out a blocked charge port which we can offer in-store, however, should the port itself be damaged we can replace it.
Charging ports will wear out over time due to repeated use, lint, dirt and liquid damage. On most iPhones, iPad, Samsungs, Huawei and Oppo devices these ports can easily be replaced to get your phone charging like new in no time.
Cleaning of the charge port is available in-store for ports that are blocked with lint and dust preventing you from inserting the charging cable or having to wriggle it around.
Charge Port FAQ
Pocket lint, dirt or a worn out charing port can cause your cable to feel loose. We can give your charging port a clean out and if that does not resolve the loose port we can then offer full charging port replacement to get it working like new again.
Several factors can cause your mobile phone to not power on including but not limited to the charging port. When a device won’t power on or indicate charging it is often best to preform an assessment to determine the cause of the issue. You can learn more about diagnostic assessment here.
iPhone users can clean out their charging port using an online guide like this one from Tom’s Guide using soft tools like a toothpick, toothbrush or port cleaning tool. For those with micro USB or USB-C charge ports we don’t recommend user cleaning as there is less space in the ports and they can easily be damaged. We can give your charge port a clean out if you come in-store.
On most mobile phones you should still have full function of the wireless charge even if your charging port is damaged, faulty or blocked.
Newer smart phones have sensors that can detect if there is water or moisture in or near the charging port and disable charging if detected to protect the device from damage. However these sensors are prone to fail and can give you a warning while disabling charging even if the device hasn’t had water damage. Most often this will require a replacement of the charging port which includes the sensor.

Why do you need my passcode?
We need it to test new parts to ensure they are working by giving the device back to you. We do this, so you don’t have to come back if a component in your repair is faulty such as a speaker. For security reasons all iPhone’s require a passcode to be entered before any function of the device can be used. With iOS 11 this includes charging an iPhone after an hour.
